Sunday, May 19, 2019. First Baptist Church, Burlington, Kansas. Pastor Jay Hale. All words are pegs to hang ideas on. The Bible uses words to describe God. In Revelation 19:13, Jesus is called the Word (or Logos) of God. Jesus is communicating to us what we need to know about God. In John 1:1-18 we read that the Word (Jesus) was God and was with God. A few verses later we read that the Word created all things. In verse 14 we read that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. So, Jesus was God and was with God from eternity past. During and following creation, God spoke and Jesus did what God directed.
